Paris Time Report launch

Batteries and Secure Energy Transitions

Background information

The IEA's Special Report on Batteries and Secure Energy Transitions will highlight the important role of battery technologies to fulfil recent commitments made by nearly 200 countries at COP28, including tripling global renewable energy capacity by 2030, doubling the pace of energy efficiency improvements by 2030 and transitioning away from fossil fuels.

The report brings together the latest data and information on batteries from around the world, including recent market developments and technological advances, insights and analysis on leading markets, and key barriers to growth, highlighting areas that call for greater policy attention.

The Special Report on Batteries also covers battery storage in the power sector and electromobility. And, by looking at the entire battery ecosystem, from critical minerals and manufacturing to use and recycling, it identifies synergies and potential bottlenecks across different sectors.
